Subject: Deltas returned from sub lack internal "owner" attribute
Running perl 5.22.1 I'm writing a module that returns File::Monitor::Delta objects, but their methods break due to "owner" being undefined. See the attached example code, it should print a file name but instead fails with Can't call method "_make_absolute" I suspect "weaken" should only be called if the reference is truly circular. Can fix by changing line 87 of File/Monitor/Object.pm to weaken $self->{owner} if $self->{owner} == $self;

#!perl -w use strict; use Carp::Always; use File::Spec; use File::Monitor; my $new_file = 'new_file'; # Clean up after last run unlink $new_file if -f $new_file; my @results; # Get a list of of deltas sub get_deltas { my $monitor = File::Monitor->new(); $monitor->watch($new_file); $monitor->scan; # Create the thing we're looking for & return it open NEW,'>',$new_file; close NEW; return $monitor->scan; } @results = get_deltas; for (@results) { print $_->name; # This gives an error } # Clean up, if the above passes :-) unlink $new_file;
